Sure, those are good, but they only let you sacrifice a creature once, plus you have to use mana for it. Viscera Seer is repeatable and FREE, which means if you get the Nether Traitor loop going you can drain 1 or more for every mana you have, and since you can make a ton with Crypt of Agadeem you'd have the potential to drain your opponent down from 20 in a single turn. Plus you get to scry infinitely to find a removal spell or something if you need it, or if you use Nantuko Husk you can make a huge beater to get in a chunk of damage.

Ti consiglio di togliere:

In ogni caso, ti suggerirei di avere 2/3 boardwipe nel mazzo, gestisciteli tu. In un mono-nero, non posso che consigliarti vivamente Mutilate, oppure anche In Garruk's Wake. Due tizi fighi che spazzano solo le cose degli altri, a proposito, anche se non sono vampiri, sono Dread Cacodemon e Reiver Demon.

Hai tanti single target removal, tipo 10-11 (contando anche Hex, Dregs of Sorrow...). Valuta tu se magari tagliarne 2/3 e mettere qualche vampiro in più, come Twilight Prophet, Champion of Dusk, Mirri the Cursed, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Necropolis Regent o Defiant Bloodlord.

La tua mana base è un po' fatta di corsa, valuta sostituire qualche Swamp con delle utility lands come: Barren Moor, Mortuary Mire, Bojuka Bog, Myriad Landscape, Crypt of Agadeem, Cabal Stronghold. Se ti va, c'è sempre la combo Dark Depths + Vampire Hexmage.

Aggiungendo carte come Caged Sun, Nirkana Revenant e le terre che fanno tanto mana, insieme ad Extraplanar Lens, potresti valutare anche l'inclusione di Exsanguinate come alternative win condition.

Vedi tu cosa togliere, se vuoi ti mando una lista di cosa toglierei io su whatsapp. Inoltre, secondo me, potresti considerare un paio di terre in meno, siccome la tua curva di mana, per come è adesso il mazzo, è molto bassa. Tu nel caso cambia qualche carta, e ricontrolla la curva, poi ti adegui di conseguenza.

Damn that Wonder is a spicy include, I totally overlooked it before and I absolutely need one for now.

Living Death has put up results when I played it since I aim to have as many creatures in the yard as I can, which usually ends up being far more than any of our opponents, sometimes even more than them combined. Don't forget a lot of our creatures come in with EtB kill abilities, so consider this is on our turn we can arrange the stack as we want, meaning we can have those creatures go off first. Having a Phyrexian Obliterator, Duplicant, Hostage Taker, and Overseer of the Damned come in and wipe the 4 biggest threats on the board really makes Living Death more viable than you'd think, and with cards like Buried Alive you can pick and choose what you want on your board after the LD. Plus, you can always rip problem cards out early using SG's ability. Your meta might be more creature-heavy though, so be careful if so.

Keep running that Zombie Apocalypse btw if you like it. EDH is the flavor over function format and it's not a bad card at all, especially if you're running as many zombies as you are. My build barely runs any zombies at this point so I saw no success with it, but that card has a ridiculously high ceiling in a deck like this so have fun with it.

I hear you on the Cabal Coffers thing btw. I wanted one for a long time when I first got back into the game, but the more I play it the more I realize how much it sucks for me outside of mono decks. Crypt of Agadeem is where it's at and I'm happy to see it in this list.

So yeah, def like where this is going. Got some real spicy includes with cards like Training Grounds (which I want but am too cheap for after finishing off my modern decks) and Curse of the Bloody Tome which I'm gonna find some ways to add in. Really digging this list though, looks great.

2 other things I forgot:

1.) Zombie Apocalypse sadly isn't as good as I expected it to be. It's probably the best flavor card in any zombie deck so if you're going for straight flavor it rules (especially if you can snag the full art promo one), but otherwise it's just a more limited Living Death for an extra .

2.) Crypt of Agadeem and Songs of the Damned are going to score you ridiculous amounts of mana. I was consistently netting 11-14 mana per turn off of Crypt in the late game, and usually getting at least 4 or 5 in the mid. Cabal Coffers isn't a bad idea if you can afford it, but definitely not as necessary as Crypt.

No problem.

A couple of nice cards with this type of deck:

  • Eternal Witness. Want something back from the graveyard? This is how you get anything back. Gets better, the longer the game goes. Has a soft-lock/control combo with Primal Command (you put a land from play to top of opponents library, and tutor up you Eternal Witness - next turn, you play witness, return command to hand, and play it again, to put another land on top.

  • Acidic Slime. For those games where you get really annoyed with something other than a creature.

  • Crypt of Agadeem. Never tried this one, but I've intended to for a while. It would be a 1-of, but probably needs more black creatures than what you have currently.

Overall, the more Unburial Rites you have, the more you can bring 1-of silver bullet creatures, and reanimate them as and when needed. You have about 8 beatsticks, all reliant on a well-stocked graveyard, and somewhere around 12 enablers that give you land on hand and creatures in the graveyard. Apart from that, anything could be used, as long as it's a creature. With some fetches, you could also use more delirium (specifically: Traverse the Ulvenwald).

Deck looks awesome! I'd replace Harvester of Souls with Abyssal Persecutor. Quicker to get out, gives a false sense of security and dominates the field.

You may also want to look at the Gravecrawler and Blasting Station combo. Works especially well with Crypt of Agadeem or Cabal Stronghold and Gravecrawler is great for getting out your demons.

Also might want to check out Torgaar, Famine Incarnate.
